I wrote my first column about 54 years ago. I would have been 12 years old. I guess you couldn’t really call it a column. Better to call it a “letter to the editor.”
But, it was an exercise in writing and a lesson learned that I still remember.
I sent that note to the Wallaces Farmer magazine. Wallaces Farmer was about the only magazine we received out in corn country. I just checked and it is still in business, no doubt changed a bit from the time before the Internet and instant news. I forget how often we received the magazine, but I think it was once a month.
